Other solutions at CABSAT 2012 will include Flashlink FRS-HD-CHO-ASI, a new ASI changeover switch
for protection switching, Flashlink FRS-3G-DUAL, a dual 3G frame synchroniser, Flashlink DA-3GHD-8-D, an 8-port distribution amplifier, Flashlink CleanSW-2x2, a clean switch for disruption-free switching of 3G/HD/SD-SDI and embedded audio, A fully SMPTE-compliant 3G-SDI time division multiplexer/de-multiplexer, 3G-SDI versions of Flashlink up/down/cross converters (UDC-UPC/DWC/CRC-3G), 3G routing and optical routing choices.
However, if a fault should arise with the AMF, its interconnecting cables or control system, there could be a loss of mains power through the AMF's changeover switch
. Now, power solutions company, Scorpion Power Systems, has launched a mechanical AMF Bypass Switch, which will switch the mains supply directly from the input to the output in the event of a fault.
JR East fixed the problem by replacing the equipment that controls signals, attributing the malfunction to a burned power supply changeover switch
for the signals.
This system, however, requires an increased number of water-cooled circuits and may need increased maintenance on the high-current changeover switch
. The shorter coil design can also lead to lower electrical efficiency.
At IBC, broadcasters will see a new ASI changeover switch
(FRS-HD-CHO-ASI) that provides protection switching, a dual 3G frame synchronizer (FRS-3G-DUAL), and an 8-port distribution amplifier (DA-3GHD-8-DL).
